Okuma Citrix "a" Casting Reel

Okuma pulled out all the stops with new the Okuma Citrix “a” Casting Reel. Not only did they lower the price, they also added two ball bearings, bringing the bearing count to ten (9+1), and gave it an all new matte-black finish. Its ALC: diecast aluminum frame and graphite sideplates form a rigid, lightweight platform to keeps all moving parts in perfect alignment, and the addition of the two bearings makes its smooth functioning even smoother. The Multi-Disc Carbonite Drag System also starts up smooth and stays smooth throughout its range, and the Centrifugal Cast Control System is externally adjustable for quick cast control changes on the water. Back and better than ever, the Okuma Citrix "a" Casting Reel delivers improved performance at a reasonable price.

Customer Reviews

Comments: Another great reel from Okuma. Very easy to adjust for casting. Would be nice to have a few more options on the external cast control to really dial it in, but it still beats many reels I've paid much more for. Smooth casting and reeling. Overall, a great performer. I now own 2 Serranos, 1 Komodo, and this Citrix a. Slowly converting to nearly all Okuma gear as I find them equal to or superior to any other "top name brands". I also find that with other brands, the price you would pay is far higher to get the same features and performance you get with Okuma. Keep up the good work Okuma!!
